Established through a gift from Laura J. Feuerstein, MSW, and Irwin M. Feuerstein, MD, the Feuerstein Health & Wellness Information Center is a collaboration of Becker Medical Library, the Family Resource Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and the Washington University Wellness Connection. The goal of the center is to provide Washington University employees and students with convenient access to reliable and authoritative health information and raise awareness of programs and resources for wellness and healthy living that are available to the campus community.
Located on the main floor of the Bernard Becker Medical Library, the center features printed materials including pamphlets, handouts and books on a variety of popular health and wellness topics. A computer and printer are available for browsing lists of web-based resources on health and wellness that have been reviewed and selected by the staff of Becker Library and the Family Resource Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. The center also serves as a source for information on health and wellness programs and events available to the Washington University employees and students.
